LONDON: Ministers will be advised against the mass rollout of COVID-19 vaccinations to children below the age of 18 in the UK until scientists obtain more data on the risks, The Telegraph reported on Tuesday (Jun 15).

Experts on the country's Joint Committee on Vaccination and Immunisation (JCVI) are understood to be preparing an interim statement for release as soon as the end of the week following a meeting on Tuesday, the report added.

"Scientists want to see more data from the US and elsewhere before taking a firm stand either way. Nobody is going to make a final decision at this point. The JCVI will want to weigh up the benefits against the risks before vaccinating children, and it wants more data," a government source told the paper.

JCVI and Britain's Department of Health and Social Care did not immediately respond to a Reuters request for comment outside business hours.

The report also added that committee members are understood to have voiced ethical concerns about vaccinating children as they rarely suffer severe COVID-19.

Earlier this month, Britain's medicines regulator extended approval of the COVID-19 vaccine developed by Pfizer and BioNTech for children aged 12 to 15 years.

The regulator said it would now be up to JCVI to decide whether to go ahead and inoculate this age group as part of Britain's vaccination roll-out plan.

Can SG ministers at least wait till the UK ministers have gotten more data first before continuing with vaccinating our kids?

I understand that you want to open the borders asap to help our economy. But our kids are innocent, can we wait till more data is available before subjecting them to new and experimental vaccines?

I think it is way too late for Singapore. A lot of Singapore kids are already vaccinated. Their long term health is now in doubt.

There was no hurry to vaccinate our kids. I wonder why the zealousness in doing so?

Is there any harm in waiting for more data to be available? Do our ministers have some kind of vaccination KPI to meet? At the expense of Singaporean kids??

The vaccines are from foreign countries.

There is nothing that was made locally.

So if the vaccines are from foreign countries, data also from foreign countries, and now the caution also from the same foreign countries, who the heck are we to say we are authorized to make the right decision based on our own judgement??

Ok fair point. Let us laymen wait for the data to be released and see what they say. They are the scientists after all.

Don't you already know that Delta is transmissible even though the hosts are vaccinated?

Singapore have a few infected kids and the government panicked. The government panicking went so high they enlisted teachers to put pressure on kids to be vaccinated.

Healthy kids immune system can deal with the wuhan virus. It more of a common flu to them than anything else.

In the USA it is illegal to use teacher to pressure parents and kids to do this kind of stuffs.
